KNITTING. The museum employees. Pozhalostina provided the residents of Ryazan with the opportunity to get acquainted with the works created by the artist Ilya Tabenkin. In life, the work of the artist, who created amazing paintings, was not known to many. Today, works belonging to Ilya Tabenkin are stored in famous museums of the country, and art historians speak of the artist as a classic who has taken a significant place in the art of the second part of the twentieth century.
The paintings of Ilya Tabenkin, which are a reflection of the complex life of the artist, as well as his fate, are not simple. He came to this style at almost sixty years old. And the story of his career began, when in 1931 the future artist became a student at the 1905 memory school. The young man did not have to study long. In 1934, he was arrested. The reason for the arrest was a package with paints sent to a comrade who got to the camp.
The authorities estimated this premise at three years of life in a Karaganda camp and exile to Bashkiria. Already living in Bashkiria, the artist learns that the Moscow Institute. Surikov was evacuated to Samarkand. Ilya Tabenkin with great difficulty gets to the place of future studies. With the available documents he was not allowed to go to college, so he “loses” them. Only the confusion of those years gave Ilya Tabenkin the opportunity to get an education.
The art critic Nina Pavlova says that the elongated figures living on the artist’s canvases have gathered all human feelings. The color used by the artist in his works cannot be conveyed in reproductions; he comes to life only in the originals. This serves as an occasion to visit the exhibition, for which Leo Tabenkin, the artist’s son, brought over 50 works of his father.
You can see the work of Ilya Tabenkin until March 21.
